diabetes & cinnamonThe posts of Joe De Livera from Sree Lanka are very useful to professionals as well as novice. I could only read only 3 or 4 threads of him on diabetes. Still there are some questions regarding the doses.
The biggest problem in India about cinnamon is adulteration. First how to ascertain that the cinnamon bark sold in the open market is free from adulteration?
Now coming to the wet dose, Joe is recommending to put 3 pellets in 500 ml water and follow two successions. Pellets is a general term. In India sugar globules of different sizes are used. So it is confusing to use pellets. In stead of using pellets, I suggest to specify drops of Arnica. Some one already requested on this point but it could not be replied.
The term succession is unknown to novice. Succession actually means (centesimal) mixing and shaking 1 part of medicen with 99 parts of solvent (Alcohol and water). But Joe is recommending only water (without alcohol). I request Joe to kindly clarify.
I have in fact a problem of diabetic patient. He is diabetic since 25 years and takes 35 units of insulin 3 times a day. His foot had ulcers due to diabetes and as a result amputated two foot fingers. After reading one of the first posts on diabetes by Joe, I gave cinnamon decoction and 5 drops of Arnica 30 to this said diabetic. Though two days passed, no improvement found. He is testing ketonic 365 mg/dl glucose. There is also a wound that is not healing.
SPRING WATER IS NOT AVAILABLE IN STORES IN SOME PARTS OF THE COUNTRY.
I request Joe for advise.
